ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI – The Crown’s case against Glenroy Pierre of St Vincent continued today, February 19, 2014 with testimony from two Police officers.

Pierre pleaded not guilty to charges of illegal entry; supplying or offering to supply a controlled drug; possession of a controlled drug; importation or being concerned in the importation of a controlled drug and unlawful possession of a controlled drug.

The defendant has been on remand since his arrest in 2012 and is being represented by attorney Patrick Thompson after representing himself in an earlier aborted trial.

The boat Pierre was reportedly travelling with two others in October 2012 was described by one Officer as a “storehouse of cannabis” and found to be in a deplorable condition.  

Pierre was allegedly discovered along with Ralph James and Adrian Arthur on a boat containing over 500kg of cannabis that had been stuffed in ‘crocus’ bags in all parts of the boat.  

The vessel, which one of the officers described as not being sea worthy, had been drifting in the waters for some days near Anegada on October 25, 2012 after it had broken down. The two other men pleaded guilty to similar charges and were sentenced last year.

Other officers had previously given testimony when the trial restarted on February 5, 2014 and the Crown is expected to wrap up its case when the matter resumes on March 11, 2014.
